    Stocks ended sharply higher Monday, bouncing back from deep losses in the previous session as trade tensions between the U.S. and China appeared to ease.

    The Dow gained nearly 670 points, with Microsoft as the best-performing stock in the index. The S&P 500 gained 2.7 percent to bounce above its 200-day moving average, with technology and financials leading all sectors higher. The Nasdaq advanced 3.25 percent, with Apple and Amazon both rising.

    Bullshit, the market was trying in vain to try to teach Trump a lesson and they failed. LOOK! SQUIRREL!

     

    I’m glad that last Friday was payday, My paycheck contribution went into a down market and mad a few percent in a day.

      Trump is operating to a different driver and it shows in the reaction of the market gurus. The powers that be on Wall Street know that the marketplace is a bit oversold and they are wetting themselves in case Trump does something decisive because the wall street denizens are basically gutless. Trump does decisive things too get long term action and wins on the board. This scares the living shit out of the Way Street pussies.

      🙂

      There guys live in the hope that the market will go up regardless forever. A hopeless wish but they are scared of their own shadows in case they trigger something …. anything that will decrease the value of their stocks, even if it means that Trump gets his way in the medium term and they profit on the back of that !

      As I said … pussies

      ok,this is getting bad. The so-called Cambridge Analytica whistleblower – the guy with the pink hair – is now implying that his predecessor was murdered. And he’s doing it to Parliament.

      ———————
      Cambridge Analytica Christopher Wylie has today revealed his predecessor died mysteriously in a Kenyan hotel room – and may have been poisoned.

      The tech specialist said Dan Muresan was found dead in 2012 amid reports that a deal he was working on went ‘sour’.

      Giving evidence to the culture select committee of MPs, Mr Wylie told how rumours that Mr Muresan had been killed circulated around the controversial data firm.

      And he heard talk the Kenyan police had been bribed not to enter the hotel room for 24 hours in a bid to cover up the possible murder.

      He made the explosive comments to a committee of MPs investigating the spread of fake news.

      Rumours that the death could have been murdered will fuel concerns about Cambridge Analytica and the shady world it operated in.

      CA doesn’t operate in a shady world. The Clinton Foundation does, tho.

      well, the vax helps, but…they cant get them all. immunity is identified by the proteins that are on the outside of the virii…get one and maybe you are immune to another, depends on the outer proteins as that is how the immune system recognizes friend or foe

      For the last 100 years we have had an extraordinarily long run of incredibly good luck regarding the Flu. During the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic the Flu killed somewhere north of 50 million people world wide. In the United States alone, the estimation is somewhere between 675,000 and 5 million.

      The exact number is so… shall we say… uncertain because the US Government at the time intentionally covered up the death toll. With the US heavily involved in WWI the US Government did not want the average American freaking out over the fact that the Spanish Flu was killing even more American’s then the “Great War” was.

      All of us alive today have grown up in a world where we have essentially been taught that the Flu, is a more or less tamed viral contagion. This is of course not even remotely the case, we have simply been fortunate that the strain’s of the Flu that have been prevalent since the 1918 epidemic have been the milder less virulent ones. Plus we have developed more effective treatment options that mask most of the Flu’s symptoms.

      While our medical sciences have vastly improved since 1918, there are some simple truths that we should not lose sight of. An ounce of prevention is still worth a pound of cure. We do not as yet have a cure for the Flu (or for the common cold even). While our medical sciences are progressing, they are yet far from perfect.

      As of today, Mr Death may no longer walk hand in hand with every man woman and child on the face of the earth as he has done for the last uncounted melleina, he has not been banished, he is patient and for now is content to walk behind us knowing that eventually he will catch up with us. He knows that we will eventually tire, weaken and falter and then we are, as we have always been, be his once again.

      Types A, B and C are… well, gross characterizations. They are classifications of specific RNA genomes, but do not identify specific stains of the virus. Those are identified by specific protean sequences for example, 22 H1N1, 9 H2N2, and 30 H3N2.

      Type A is the most virulent (most aggressive) while type C is the least virulent. The crossover effectiveness of any vaccination for a type, is going to be predicated on how closely the vaccine mimic’s the protean structure of the specific strain it encounters.

      So, in some cases, the vaccine for Type A will be equally effective for types B and C and in other cases, where the protean sequences is a very poor match it will have little to no effect.

      Yes, one of my pet peeves on this exact subject… Is Sliver and Copper. What do Silver and Cooper have to do with an ounce of prevention and knowledge unused you ask? (go ahead and ask)…

      Silver and Copper are amazing anti-bacterial agents. Bacteria, virus, all sort and manner of of pesky disease vector pathogen stuff simply refuse to grow on either silver or cooper. Yet most hospitals use stainless steel for door handles, kick-plates and toilet facilities fixtures, thus enabling a great host of pathogens to flourish.

      The amount of secondary infections that could be reduced in hospitals by replacing the aforementioned articles with silver or cooper plated accoutrements would far outweigh to cost of the silver or cooper.

      Stainless steel surgical instruments, put a fine silver or cooper plating on them and watch secondary infection rate significantly decrease.

      I sincerely question your characterization of yourself as a legal “doofus”. No way, no how. Stevens was not the most intellectually curious of the justices – not in the Scalia/Alito mold. He replaced William O. Douglas on the Court and one attorney I know said “how could they tell…..”?

      Breyer is the one I dislike the most – he’s still there and he’s incredibly stupid. His brother Charles is a District Judge at the Northern District, and is a superb jurist. But then Clinton’s SCOTUS picks SUCKED. But apparently Obama wanted to even RAISE the Unqualified Limbo Bar.

      yeah, that’s a bit of ‘not even the rest of the story’. Every dept has a slush fund’ mechanism and it’s not about ‘why should the Pentagon pay for he wall?’ – a completely specious question – but ‘how the hell are we going to get this done?’. I’ve seen monies that SHOULD be in the Homeland Security budget in the Agriculture Dept budget – (immigration stuff) – as slush fund money. This stuff happens all the time. Also, I wonder where he thinks ‘self executing rules’ come from. Hubby has had to move a client’s budget from one dept to another for a budget cycle just for political reasons.

      If he wants to talk about ‘common sense’ – those monies now are counted against the Pentagon’s baseline budget going forward instead of Homeland Security’s. The Pentagon has got to be happier than a pig in shit about that one.

      As mentioned earlier in #1 post. The market was oversold and the Wall St. folks were gagging for an excuse to sell off a little and grab the profit gain when it was going. Then the market rebounds 2.7% a few days later and everyone goes home and places an order for another Range Rover.

It’s a bit like Haiti there with the local gays who are into ancestor worship and all types of creepy stuff , pandering to visiting gay Euros. When these types of deals go wrong the results can be terminal. Kenya used to be a nice place to go see the animals.

      oh great. McCain is writing a book.

      Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is set to offer a “no-holds-barred” assessment of the Trump administration in a new memoir.

      The book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, said Monday that “The Restless Wave” will begin with McCain’s 2008 White House run against now-former President Obama, and will reflect on his time in the Senate during Obama’s tenure in office, according to AFP.

      But he will also “share his experiences during the divisive 2016 election and his no-holds-barred opinions on the current developments coming out of Washington,” the publisher said.

      It should be titled “How to Destroy My Enemy”. This will be taken as the last will and testament of a dying man, therefore beyond any moral objections or questions. McCain can write that Trump has been sexually abusing his children with animals and because he wrote it on his death bed, no one will be permitted to gainsay it.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      I’ve been meaning to ask you a question about Christopher Steele and I’m not sure how to articulate it.

      Is it strange to you that someone who rose high enough in MI-6 to be head of Russia desk freelances in an ally’s election – the U.S. – and uses dodgy Russian sources to do it? To me that seems not just odd, it seems downright hostile. And I wonder what other intelligence agents who worked with him and work with MI-6 now think of it. I know the U.S. is not exactly viewed with great fondness by MI-6, but RUSSIA? Srsly?

      You might also like to read this:-

      https://peterwatsonauthor.com/books/war-on-the-mind/

      The Interrogation chapters were required reading before the annual Interrogation battle inside the heads of the SAS recruits.

      There are a lot of interesting bits and you can read chapters in isolation as they are complete. The ones on rifleman-ship studied at the end of WWII and especially the Korean war is illuminating and totally changed the way training of infantry was carried out.Also the psychology of the combat soldier was gobsmacking.

      @ eaglesoars:
      For Steele to even go freelance after his time at MI-6 seriously raises eyebrows. Especially in the British context. To then get involved in some other nation’s elections would result in someone from MI-6 dropping in and telling Steele to take up house painting or bricklaying ! The Russian sources were dodgy to say the least and active members of MI-6 would be none too pleased with Steele wandering about on their turf where their operational tasks might be compromised by attracting the attention of the SVR / FSB.

      Sure ex Intel types can go and get involved in Business Intel but dabbling back in the same pond that the just got out of is a serious No-No.

      Thank you. That was my assumption. So one of 3 things is true: he told MI-6 he didn’t like bricklaying; MI-6 never visited him; or MI-6 supported him

      Ignoring advice from the gov’t probably would have triggered some sort of agent thing he had to sign like the Official Secrets Act and his ass would be in The Tower.

      Not getting visit from the gov’t is barely believable

      That leaves me with the most probable scenario being that MI-6 – and therefore the UK gov’t – supported his efforts. Which is even more disturbing when you look at his product. It was toe-curlingly risible. The former head of the MI-6 Russia desk and that’s the best he can do?

      WHAT??

      Scientists discover new organ spanning the ENTIRE human body that acts as a built-in ‘shock absorber’

      Humans have been studying the anatomy of our own bodies for thousands of years – but, to this day, scientists are still uncovering new secrets.

      A team of researchers has identified what’s said to be a previously undiscovered organ, and may even be one of the largest in the body.

      What was once thought to be dense, connective tissues running all throughout the body has now been found to be a network of fluid-filled compartments that may act as ‘shock absorbers.’

      Not only could the finding reshape our understanding of the human body, but scientists say it could help to explain why cancer is more likely to spread when it invades certain areas.

      Dubbed the ‘interstitium,’ interconnected compartments act like a ‘highway of moving fluid’ that sits beneath the top layer of the skin, lines the digestive tract, lungs and urinary systems, and surrounds the arteries, veins, and the fascia between muscle.

      The human body contains huge amounts of fluid.

      More than half of this is found within the cells, and another seventh inside the heart, blood vessels, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels. The rest is known as interstitial.

      Now, researchers say the network that carries this interstitial fluid is its own distinct organ.

      Not just the government but large corporations as well. … and they judge diversity by how someone is pigmented or plumbed, not by diversity of experience. This is particularly true at the top levels of corporations. It is no longer about the best person for the job, it is the “best person of [insert type here] for the job”.

      I know a level over 200 is considered high. When I had my surgery in 2011, it was at 152. My last blood work, about 3 weeks ago, had my total level at well under 100, my ‘good’ at under 35 and my ‘bad’ cholesterol at under 55. That just seems weird.

      Scientists say they’ve discovered a new organ — possibly the human body’s largest — and it was hiding in plain sight, according to a new study.

      The so-called interstitium is an interconnected system of tiny fluid-filled cavities throughout the entire body that acts as a “highway” for our internal water supply, study co-author Dr. Neil Theise told LiveScience.com.

      The findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports Tuesday.

      I keep hearing people say that that hasn’t been on the census since the ’50s. About 10 yrs ago, I had to research this and talked to some of the guys at BLS who were census guys. They told me they hadn’t collected the data since the 1990 census – and they gave it up because everybody lied.

      which is the problem I have with putting it on the census now. People will lie, the citizen population count will be larger than it actually is, and the libs will say “Hey, it’s YOUR census question, there’s your answer!”

      Hi, all together, hi {eagle} a short stop by because this may be interesting for some of you

      How Zuckerberg’s Facebook is like Gutenberg’s printing press

      THE BIG IDEA:

      PALO ALTO, Calif.—When historian Niall Ferguson moved from Harvard to Stanford two years ago, he was struck by Silicon Valley’s indifference to history. The hubris he saw reminded him of what he encountered on Wall Street as he researched a book about the history of banking during the years before the financial crisis. He became convinced the technology sector was careening toward its own crisis and decided to write about it.

      The crisis has finally arrived, thanks to Cambridge Analytica, conveniently timed to coincide with the publication of Ferguson’s new book on the history of social networks, from the Freemasons to Facebook. “The Square and the Tower” is a cautionary tale that challenges the conventional wisdom that growing interconnectedness is inherently good for society. “Our networked world is fundamentally vulnerable, and two-factor authentication won’t save us,” Ferguson said at the Hoover Institution, where he is a senior fellow.

      Since President Trump’s victory, much has been written about parallels between the present and the rise of authoritarian leaders in the 1930s. Ferguson thinks that’s lazy analysis. For most of the 20th century, communications systems were amenable to central control. This was a fluke of the Industrial Revolution, which produced telegraphs and then telephones. These technologies had an architecture that allowed whoever controlled the hub to dominate the spokes, which led to more hierarchical power structures.

      To understand the current era, Ferguson believes we need to look more at what happened after Johannes Gutenberg developed the printing press. Like the Web, the use of these presses was difficult to centrally control. “At the beginning of the Reformation 501 years ago, Martin Luther thought naively that if everybody could read the Bible in the vernacular, they’d have a direct relationship with God, it would create ‘the priesthood of all believers’ and everything would be awesome,” said Ferguson.

      “We’ve said the same things about the Internet,” he added. “We think that’s obviously a good idea. Except it’s not obviously a good idea, any more than it was in the 16th century. Because what the Europeans had was not ‘the priesthood of all believers.’ They had 130 years of escalating religious conflict, culminating in the Thirty Years War – one of the most destructive conflicts ever.”

      The more he studies that period, the more echoes Ferguson sees in the 21st century. “What one can see in the 16th and 17th centuries is polarization, fake news-type stories, the world getting smaller and therefore contagion is capable of spreading much faster,” Ferguson said. “These big shifts in network structure led to revolutions against hierarchical institutions.”

      Ferguson points to recent studies showing that fake news can spread faster and farther than real news when it’s especially sensational. “The crazy stuff is more likely to go viral because we’re kind of interested in crazy stuff, but this is not surprising historically,” he said. “The idea that witches live amongst us and should be burned went as viral as anything that Martin Luther said … Indeed, it turned out that witch burning was more likely to happen in places where there were more printing presses.”

      In a sobering 90-minute conversation, the author said he’s driven to sleeplessness when he thinks about how some of the dynamics on social media will play out in the future. “I’m much more worried than a non-historian by what I see because history tells me that the polarization process keeps going, and it doesn’t just stop at verbal violence because at a certain point that’s not satisfying,” said Ferguson.

      They won’t decline to answer. They’ll lie.

      They would be counted either way then, with or without the question. None of them will answer that they are not
      U,S citizens, but I have to believe that many will just pass on the census.

      @ Guggi:

      {GUGGI!!}

      I’ve missed you! The book sounds like it’s worth a read, thanks. I wonder if he considers what happens, tho, if the ‘hierarchical institutions’ try to contain the media, be it printing presses – which was attempted – to books to shadow banning.

      It’s not the degree of connectivity that’s the problem. The problem is how it’s used. China is going for facial recognition of its entire population. And they’ve started something called ‘social credit’. Do you take care of your parents? Are you a reliable employee? If your ‘social credit score’ is high enough, you get to travel outside the country.

      So how goes it on your side of the pond?

      That’s my point! Only if you put it on the census, now the libs can say all these illegals are officially citizens and we have to accept it don’t we? We can’t ask the question and then say we don’t like/believe the answer.

      Yeah but answering untruthfully is fraud. Libs can make the argument that by accepting their answer that they
      are now somehow citizens. That is a formal process to gain citizenship. For them to try to twist that would be
      ridiculous on its face.

      Yup, I did mean to mention that, of course they will lie if they choose to answer.
      My point is that I believe many will not answer the census at all and will cost the Dems house seats and
      federal funds.

      It’s a mess. One doesn’t know where to start. One example:

      The EU-parliament has decided a new asylum-package which includes such ridiculous rules for family re-unification that we would get entire family-clans if only one family member makes it to the EU. We are spaeking about dozens, if not hundreds of people of one family. Even the most conservative partys in the EU voted for the package HOPING that the “Rat” (Council of Ministers of the European Union) would eliminate such nonsense.

      Such nonsense goes on day after day and no hope anywhere near.

      @ Guggi:

      yes, here we call it ‘chain migration’.

      I’m good friends with someone who has worked very hard for Brexit (she’s the editor of UKIP Daily http://www.ukipdaily.com/). This is one of the fundamental forces breaking the UK out of the EU. I read that one Swedish Member of Parliament has moved to Hungary just to get away from it.

      I seriously fear you people are headed for civil war.

      It won’t stop until your elites start being murdered and raped. And maybe not then.

      ah. Well, that’s where you and I anticipate different behavior. I anticipate that the Dems will pay them to do just that. They have no qualms about voter fraud, census fraud won’t turn a hair, especially if they get to lock in the numbers for a decade.

      It’s a trap
